“Social & cultural equity photographer advocating via socially conscious image-making.”- L.A.

Great photographers visually reflect truth, inform or educate audiences by making images which provoke thought and promote “Life-Stylized” as well as narratives of hope, beauty and culture rather than highlight ugliness or mockery. Axum Creative is for socially-conscious individuals using community-first strategies to redefine and eliminate the negative visual landscape, represent culture and cultivate community. I am a social & cultural photographer promoting their pursuit for equity in education, entertainment and society by crafting distinct photographic images which result in positively shifting perceptions of the mis-represented.
